McCabe's lawyer Michael Bromwich told reporters that McCabe is also considering filing other civil claims. He said the legal team hasn't yet figured out when they're going to file the lawsuits and is working on making them "solid." "We’ll file when we're ready," Bromwich said, according to Axios.

Giuliani joins Trump legal team

Giuliani joins Trump legal team | 19 April 2018 | Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani is joining the legal team representing President Trump in the Russia investigation. Jay Sekulow, an attorney on Trump’s team, confirmed the hire and said Giuliani would be accompanied by former federal prosecutors Jane Serene Raskin and Marty Raskin.

Assange has 'physical proof' Russia didn't hack DNC - Congressman

Assange has 'physical proof' Russia didn't hack DNC - Congressman | 20 April 2018 | Russia did not provide WikiLeaks with Democratic National Committee emails during the 2016 US presidential campaign and Julian Assange has physical evidence to prove it, says a Republican congressman who met with him. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-California) visited the Ecuadorian embassy in London in August 2017 and met with Assange. He brought up that meeting on Wednesday evening's episode of Breitbart Radio. Assange had "physical proof of that" and was going to show it in exchange for an agreement that he would not get arrested upon leaving the embassy, Rohrabacher said. Rohrabacher has not been able to discuss the Assange meeting with President Donald Trump so far, due to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the 2016 election, he told Breitbart.

DOJ delivers Comey memos to Congress

DOJ delivers Comey memos to Congress | 19 April 2018 | The Department of Justice has delivered to Congress copies of former FBI Director James Comey's memos documenting his interactions with President Donald Trump, a move intended to avert a legal standoff between House Republicans and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The memos are believed to be central to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether Trump or his allies attempted to obstruct the FBI's investigation of Trump campaign contacts with Russia. Top Republicans on three House committees demanded copies of the memos last week, and on Wednesday House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte drafted a subpoena to obtain them. Comey has told lawmakers he drafted seven memos detailing his encounters with the president in person and on the phone.

Russian-American flight connection could be severed as US reduces visa issuance - Moscow

Russian-American flight connection could be severed as US reduces visa issuance - Moscow | 19 April 2018 | Direct flight connections between Russia and the US could come to a complete halt, due to Washington's ongoing "visa blockade" policy against Russian citizens, the Foreign Ministry has said. "We cannot rule out that the two countries could be left without [direct] air transportation. Aeroflot, which is the only company to operate regular flights between Russia and the US, might be forced to halt them, as its pilots are facing mounting difficulties with American visas," the ministry said in a statement... Last year, the US extended the visa waiting time to 85 days, and recently upped it to 250 days, making applying for a visa "effectively pointless."

New York attorney general wants power to bypass Trump pardons

New York attorney general wants power to bypass Trump pardons | 18 April 2018 | New York's attorney general on Wednesday asked [corporate-owned] Governor Andrew Cuomo and state legislators to give him and other local prosecutors power to bring criminal charges against people pardoned by U.S. President Donald Trump. In a letter, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman urged Cuomo and legislative leaders to close a loophole in New York's double jeopardy law shielding recipients of presidential pardons from state prosecution. A change could make it more difficult for Trump aides and others who might be pardoned to escape criminal prosecution, even if special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election were curbed or shut down.

California to deploy 400 National Guard troops, including some to US-Mexico border | 18 April 2018 | California will send up to 400 National Guard troops to several places, including the US-Mexico border after Gov. Jerry Brown made an announcement Wednesday saying guard members will combat criminal gangs, human traffickers, and illegal firearm and drug smugglers. The announcement comes as President Trump has been accusing Brown of trying to back out of sending the National Guard troops to the border. Brown says the guard will not enforce immigration laws or participate in the construction of any new border barrier.

FAA to order inspections on engine fan blades like one involved in fatal failure | 18 April 2018 | Federal airline regulators say they will order inspections on engine fan blades like the one involved in fatal failure that killed a woman in a plane that made an emergency landing in Philadelphia. The Federal Aviation Administration said late Wednesday that it will issue a directive in the next two weeks to require inspections of certain CFM56-7B engines. That's the type of engine that suffered a failure on a Southwest Airlines plane on Tuesday.

Pittsburgh police are preparing for riots if Trump fires Mueller

Pittsburgh police are preparing for riots if Trump fires Mueller | 18 April 2018 | The Pittsburgh police department has reportedly alerted its officers and detectives of potential protests if President Donald Trump fires the special counsel Robert Mueller, and is preparing for riots if he does. Pittsburgh police sent an email on Wednesday telling officers and detectives that the department has "received information of a potential large protest in the Central Business District" that would be a response to Trump firing Mueller, according to WTAE-TV, the ABC station in Pittsburgh. The police department also warned that the protests could happen in as little as 24 hours after the potential termination. The police have been told to be in uniform and have riot gear ready beginning on Thursday until further notice.

Treaty to Formally End Korean War Is Being Discussed, South Confirms | 18 April 2018 | South Korea confirmed on Wednesday that it had been in talks with American and North Korean officials about negotiating a peace treaty to formally end the Korean War after more than 60 years, as the United States and its ally try to establish a basis for persuading the North to give up its nuclear weapons. Chung Eui-yong, the national security adviser to President Moon Jae-in of South Korea, said he had discussed the matter with John R. Bolton, his newly appointed American counterpart, in Washington last week, as they prepared for the planned talks between each of their countries' presidents and Kim Jong-un, North Korea's leader. South Korean officials said they had also been in talks with the North about a possible treaty.

GOP chairman poised to subpoena DOJ for Comey memos

GOP chairman poised to subpoena DOJ for Comey memos | 18 April 2018 | The head of the House Judiciary Committee is expected to subpoena the Department of Justice (DOJ) as soon as this week to obtain copies of the Comey memos, The Hill has learned. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) is expected to issue the order in an effort to pressure the agency into granting access so lawmakers can review the seven memos former FBI Director James Comey wrote last year documenting his interactions with President Trump, according to two sources familiar with the matter. The chairman on Wednesday notified the ranking Democrat, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), that a subpoena is forthcoming. Under Judiciary committee rules, the chairman must consult the ranking member two business days "before issuing any subpoena" -- suggesting that the move is imminent.

Giant group of octopus moms discovered in the deep sea

Giant group of octopus moms discovered in the deep sea | 17 April 2018 | Two deep-sea expeditions have revealed a giant group of octopuses and their eggs in a place where they shouldn't be able to survive. "When I first saw the photos, I thought, 'They shouldn't be there! Not that deep and not that many of them!'" says Janet Voight, a zoologist at the Field Museum in Chicago and co-author of a paper on the octopuses published this month in the journal Deep Sea Research Part I. Nearly two miles deep in the Pacific Ocean and 100 miles off the coast of Costa Rica, scientists on two oceanographic cruises used subsea vehicles to explore the Dorado Outcrop, a rocky patch of seafloor formed of cooled and hardened lava from an underwater volcano. Geochemists explored the outcrop in a submersible, hoping to collect samples of the warm fluids that emerge from cracks in the rocks. They didn't count on finding dozens of octopuses huddled around those openings.

Syrian Boy in White Helmets Fake Chemical Attack Video Reveals Truth | 18 April 2018 | The White Helmets, a Western-backed NGO known for its ties with terrorist groups, had released a video showing alleged victims of the false flag chemical attack in Douma. The US and its allies used the video as a pre-text to conduct a missile strike on Syria. Russia 24 TV channel has released an exclusive interview on April 18 with a boy, who participated in filming a fake video, as evidence of the false flag chemical attack in Douma by the White Helmets. In the interview, Hassan Diab says that he and his mother heard loud voices on the street, urging everyone to rush to the hospitals. When Hassan entered the hospital, unknown people grabbed him, poured water on him and then put him with other patients.

The woman died, officials said. Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board got a preliminary look at the engine that failed. One of 24 fan blades was missing, NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt said in Philadelphia. Sumwalt said a first look showed there was evidence of metal fatigue where the blade attached to a hub.

Trump opposes US rejoining Pacific trade deal

Trump opposes US rejoining Pacific trade deal | 17 April 2018 | President Trump on Tuesday said he's opposed to the U.S. reentering the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), and instead advocated for establishing bilateral trade deals with countries. [Yes!] "While Japan and South Korea would like us to go back into TPP, I don't like the deal for the United States. Too many contingencies and no way to get out if it doesn't work," Trump tweeted. He added that bilateral deals between two nations are "far more efficient, profitable and better" for American workers.

Russia extends overflight privileges of US carriers ahead of deadline | 18 April 2018 | Moscow has extended overflight privileges of US carriers flying over Russia, hours before they were due to expire, the US State Department said, noting that it continues working with Moscow to secure "benefits" for US companies. The US State Department announced that it has been relentlessly working with Moscow to extend an agreement which allows American passenger and cargo planes to fly in Russian airspace, drastically saving time and fuel on long-distance flights. Hours before the overflight agreement was due to expire at 7:59pm (2359 GMT), the State Department confirmed that Russia granted the much-needed extension. "The Ministry of Transport informed us today that it will extend overflight approvals for US airlines for operations on three routes through October 28, 2018," the US State Department spokesperson told Sputnik on Tuesday.

Supreme Court strikes down part of immigration law as too vague

Supreme Court strikes down part of immigration law as too vague | 17 April 2018 | The Supreme Court said Tuesday that part of a federal law that makes it easier to deport immigrants who have been convicted of crimes is too vague to be enforced. The court's 5-4 decision -- in an unusual alignment in which new Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the four liberal justices -- concerns a catchall provision of immigration law that defines what makes a crime violent. The decision is a loss for President Donald Trump's administration, which has emphasized stricter enforcement of immigration law. With the four other conservative justices in dissent, it was the vote of Trump-appointee Gorsuch that was decisive in striking down the provision at issue.

"Today's Court decision means that Congress must close loopholes that block the removal of dangerous criminal aliens, including aggravated felons," Trump tweeted. "This is a public safety crisis that can only be fixed by Congress -- House and Senate must quickly pass a legislative fix to ensure violent criminal aliens can be removed from our society," he added.

Judge rejects Trump's bid to block access to Cohen materials

Judge rejects Trump's bid to block access to Cohen materials | 16 April 2018 | A federal judge dealt a blow to Michael Cohen, the president's personal lawyer, in a closely watched court decision on Monday afternoon. Judge Kimba Wood of federal District Court in Manhattan denied an attempt by Cohen and President Trump to stop prosecutors from reviewing the materials that the FBI seized from his office, home and hotel room last week, according to multiple reports. Cohen's legal team had asked for a temporary restraining order so that they could review the files and then turn over to prosecutors those that were "responsive, non-privileged items" -- a request the government called unprecedented. But in a victory for Cohen, Wood did order the government to create a database of what was taken from Cohen and share it with his legal team, according to The Associated Press.

State television showed pictures of a missile that was shot in the air above the base only days after a U.S., British and French attack on Syrian targets in retaliation for a suspected chemical attack on the city of Douma on the outskirts of Damascus. The Syrian Central Media run by the government said the missiles targeted the Shayrat air base in Homs. It did not elaborate or say who carried out the airstrikes in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The diplomat added that the incident had been a "pre-planned false-flag attack by the British security services, which could have also been aided by their allies in Washington."

Swiss lab says 'BZ toxin' used in Salisbury, not produced in Russia, was in US and UK service - Lavrov | 14 April 2018 | The substance used on Sergei Skripal was an agent called BZ, according to Swiss state Spiez lab, the Russian foreign minister said.
